Apprentice Guide (Intern)

Learn all Acton systems as directed by the lead guide
Study Socratic guiding, growth mindset, Quest design and other key features of our program
Take observation notes when directed by the lead guide
Monitor children on the playground and during times of transition
Read books for professional development assigned by lead guide or administration
Help maintain the studio space as directed by lead guide
Substitute when a lead guide must be absent
Montessori training is preferred or someone who is open to taking a Montessori course
